Dear Zone 4,
I am thrilled to be serving as your Zone 4 Representative. How did I get here? I was appointed to this position by the Executive Council of PCA National. In this role, I serve as the liaison for the 12 region boards of officers to the national staff. Iím here as their advisor, and friend to all of our Zone 4 PCA members.
A bit about my history Ė I attended my first Porsche Parade in 1983, joining my father, then President and CEO of Porsche AG, Peter Schutz, at the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. My first PCA event was the Road America PCA Driver Education (DE) with Chicago Region, then part of Zone 4. The spring of 1984 was my first autocross with Motorstadt, and I became hooked on PCA. I served as editor of the Western Michigan Region newsletter Porsche Uber Alles for 5 years, and held board positions of Western Michigan Region including 2 years as President.
I have been a member of many regions and received the Enthusiast of the Year from 3 since leaving Michigan in the early 90s. I most recently spent 10 years in Dallas with the Maverick Region, and after instructor and instructor team lead roles, became DE Chair. Since 2014, Iím a member of Southeast Michigan Region, where I participate as a DE instructor and attend social events in my 2005 Boxster S and 1988 928 S4. As a member of the PCA Club Racing National Scrutineer team, I have worked races across the country over the past 6 years.
I look forward to seeing you at your local region events throughout the year. Please feel free to reach out, invite me to a special event, or just chat.
